ESPN, Patrick go extra innings

ESPN “SportsCenter” anchor Dan Patrick on Wednesday signed a contract extension that will keep him attached to the sports cable net through the year 2004.

Agreement comes 10 days after Kenny Mayne joined Patrick as co-host of the nightly ESPN program, replacing Keith Olbermann, who defected to MSNBC at the end of June to host his own nightly talk/magazine show.

Patrick, 40, has been with ESPN since 1989. Financial terms weren’t disclosed, but one report put the new pact at more than $600,000 annually.
